Traffic Steering - Load Balancing

Built for Today's Distributed Applications

Our Traffic Steering solution combines our most requested features into a fully automated load balancing service that intelligently routes your users to the fastest resources in your network based on real-time Internet conditions.

We use
real-user metrics gathered from your website or our RUM community to paint a truly real-time map of the current state of the Internet. This data is more accurate than latency monitoring alone because it accounts for latencies across thousands of ISPs and networks using last-mile monitoring technology.
You can use our Traffic Steering solution to optimize user experience depending on each user's network, device, or connection type (Wi-Fi, LAN, etc.).

Automated Elastic Load Balancer

Our flexible Traffic Steering solution was designed with ease-of-use in mind. It runs automatically in the background, so you only need a basic understanding of our services and how to configure them to get up and running.

All you need is:
✓ Each CDN providers' API key and secret key
✓ Preconfigure your CDN settings with each providers' SSL certificate information
✓ Your origin URL
✓ Ability to add a script to your website

Traffic Steering will automatically provision monitoring checks for each of your CDN providers in five different regions. It will also create ITO load balancing pools that are integrated with your monitoring checks, so users will be routed to the best performing CDN provider in their region.

Why Traffic Steering?

Network Monitoring

Real-User Monitoring (RUM) captures response times from actual users’ browsers, whereas synthetic monitoring uses metrics gathered by resolvers in data centers.

This holistic approach gives you access to the “last mile” of monitoring: the thousands of networks and ISPs between the data centers and your users’ browser.

Easy to Install Script

No startup costs, code, or hardware required. Just copy and paste our RUM script in your site to initiate RUM, and we’ll start capturing user metrics immediately.

Once the script is installed on your site, you can breathe easy—we’ll take it from there. You can learn more about how Traffic Steering works on our help site.

Test Network Performance

Traffic Steering is powered by our RUM community, an extensive network of websites that have installed our RUM beacon. This data makes it simple for you to test network performance for most use cases.


Affordable DNS Solution

Traffic Steering at the DNS level is significantly more affordable than hardware load balancers and third-party solutions. You only have to rely on one provider, one contract, and no extra lookups to a third-party service.

Predictive Routing

Constellix is the only provider to offer predictive traffic steering, which uses proprietary algorithms to anticipate which network or cloud service will be the fastest for each user.

Real User Metrics

Don't want to use our RUM data? No problem. You can inject your own metrics into our Traffic Steering service. Just upload a JSON file with your metrics and setup API calls for our IP Filter service. It's that easy.
